Skills for Care has launched a wellbeing guide for registered care home managers.
The new guide: ‘Wellbeing for registered members of Skills for Care’, is designed to support registered managers and care home managers to better manage their own professional and personal wellbeing.
Skills for Care CEO, Sharon Allen said: “Registered managers quite rightly take pride in their ability to care for others; it’s what they’re good at, but they can often neglect their own wellbeing.
“This guide recognises that this high profile role is sometimes tough and challenging and that compromising personal health and wellbeing isn’t really an option.
“I would encourage managers to consider their own wellbeing journey first, so that they’re well equipped to look after themselves, their teams and those they support. I’m certain that I would have found this guide invaluable if it had been available when I was first in a management role in social care.”
The guide introduces registered managers to the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing – Connect, Be active, Take notice, Keep learning and Give – based on evidence by the New Economics Foundation. It also includes practical information, top tips, case studies, action plans and workbook exercises.
